AUSMEPA's key objectives include instilling an increased marine environmental consciousness and awareness in Australians and also seafarers visiting Australian ports as well as assisting the shipping industry in achieving environmental sustainability and in enhancing the industry's ‘clean and green' reputation among the community.
DVDWelcome to Australia Protecting the Marine Environment
AUSMEPA and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) produced an educational DVD which describes the importance of Australia's unique marine environment in particular the Great Barrier Reef.
The DVD also reminds ship masters and their crews of the international regulations under MARPOL with which they must comply. The DVD can be viewed in five languages; Chinese, English, Filipino, Greek and Spanish. The DVD has received international recognition by a wide range of shipping interests including P & I Clubs.
A copy of the DVD is placed on every ship when it first arrives in Australia by its agent. Supplies of the DVD are available through Shipping Australia Limited (SAL) and in selected ports from the Apostleship of the Sea (Stella Maris Seafarer Centres).
